Over the next few weeks as part of our work on developing character we will be focusing on Being Proud. If students are Proud of their achievements, they will have a thirst and an energy to achieve more – so this is an important quality to develop here at Freddies. We also want students to feel that this is their school and they belong here. Key information on ‘being proud’ is included below.

What does being proud mean?

When you are proud, you are feeling pride, or satisfaction with yourself. The word proud can also mean too much of this feeling––sometimes saying someone is proud is the same as saying they’re arrogant. This is not how we perceive feelings of pride and being proud at Freddies – we see this as a positive quality which leads to students potentially working even harder. It’s also possible to feel proud of someone else.

At school right now hundreds of students are collecting rewards for their excellent work. Many are now wearing BADGES for achieving 100/150 and 200 rewards. They are PROUD of their achievements. Well done to all students who are achieving high numbers of rewards.

Week beginning 9th May we are promoting our SUMMER END OF TERM TRIPS. We want students to feel that sense of pride as they achieve the criteria to attend these trips.
